How Speedglas simplifies the switch from welding to grinding!

Are you grinding, cutting, or performing other non-welding tasks regularly? Depending on the job, you may need to switch applications at a moment’s notice. But why should you have to switch your protection?

Welding fume particles can remain in the air for up to 48 hours after welding is completed. This in turn can create significant respiratory health effects, including several types of cancer. That’s why it’s so important not to remove your helmet in the welding environment and maintain your respiratory protection at all times.

Speedglas welding helmets enable you to switch seamlessly from welding to grinding without breaking the positive pressure respiratory seal.

This creates complete versatility, right at your fingertips!



External Grind Button

External Grind Mode

With external grind mode you can switch to grinding at the touch of a button, without taking off your helmet or gloves. This is one of the most acclaimed characteristics of the Speedglas 9100XXi Air (part no. 507726), as you can easily switch from welding to a shade 3 grind mode whenever necessary. A classic feature that saves you time while keeping you protected!

Flip-Up Grinding Visor

Flip-Up Grinding Visor

As far as innovation goes, Speedglas flip-up welding helmets are a cut above: their smooth flip-up mechanism reveals the full clarity of a dedicated high impact grinding visor. What’s more, the usefulness of this perfectly integrated design even goes beyond grinding. In fact, the expansive clear visor in the Speedglas 9100XXi FX Air (part no. 547726) can improve welders’ ability to set-up and inspect just-completed welds. It also affords the freedom to walk around the workplace with perfect vision, all while your respiratory protection remains intact.

The signature Speedglas flip-up front is also available in the 9100XXi MP Air (part no. 577726), which boasts an additional integrated safety helmet as one of its five levels of protection. This once again eliminates the need for welders to change their headtop and break the respiratory seal.

Removable Flip-Up Welding Shield

Removable Welding Visor

This Speedglas G5-01 Heavy-Duty Welding Helmet is a real game changer… a helmet which incorporates a flip-up welding shield that is entirely removable! Never seen before and pretty hard to beat!

The new innovative G5-01 flip-up function (617830) allows you to quickly remove the auto-darkening welding shield component, reducing the overall weight of the helmet by over 35% in the process. For heavy-duty welders who also undertake extended non-welding work, this is an absolute must.

To top it off, the G5-01’s built-in grinding visor is 15% larger than in the 9100XXi FX Air and 9100XXi MP Air – measuring a massive 170mm x 104mm in total!
